I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Alhambra Source Again Honored for Local Coverage by Institute for Nonprofit News


Alhambra , CA

 The Institute for Nonprofit News list of the best offerings of 2019 is out and for the second straight year the Alhambra Source has been honored for its local coverage.

The Institute has more than 230 members including CALmatters, the Center for Investigative Reporting and Mother Jones. and many smaller local outlets including Alhambra Source.

This year the Alhambra Source was honored in the local investigations category for its coverage of the controversy over a Sikh Gurdwara in Alhambra, which may lose its home after the owner of the property slated the building for demolition to make way for a mixed-use condominium complex.

Details of the story, which also raised questions about the accuracy of testimony from the developer to the city’s Planning Commission as well as Alhambra’s practices of public notification to area residents on building projects, was first reported in Alhambra Source and was picked up by several mainstream news organizations, ethnic media outlets and, just last week, the Religion News Service.

 The issue is still not settled, as the Alhambra’s City Council recently ordered it sent back to the Planning Commission for a possible re-vote. Consideration of that action is expected to come at the Planning Commission’s Dec. 2 meeting.

 In 2018, the Alhambra Source made the INN top story list for its report on an anti-gun violence resolution created by Alhambra High School students in response to the Majority Stoneman Douglas High School shootings in Parkland, Florida. Rep. Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park) introduced their efforts as House Resolution 1076 on Sept. 25, 2018.

 In celebrating the work of non-profit newsrooms, INN encourages readers to support independent journalism by donating to their local news sites during the NewsMatch campaign, which runs through Dec. 31, 2019.

The full list of INN honorees may be found here.
